Kyle, what if you added an axle?

We could take this to the next level and I could sell you my fiberglass fenders, so I could move the stainless fenders I've always wanted...

I'm not sure how "period correct" you want to be.

Kyle, why not just buy a trailer manufacturer? Wouldn't that be easier.

But to add to Cameron's point, it might be less trouble to have a good company do a dual axle conversion. A friend of mine took his single axle to Dorsey (when they were still in business) and had it done.

How hard could it be?

To me, this forum is about love of inboard boats. It is about the sharing of information and, on a good day, some humor. It is not about post count, brand of boat, or any other superfluous labels that lend themselves to a false sense of superiority. Please, respect one another, try to pass on accurate information, and keep your eye on the ball.

How much do you hate the maneuver issues?
well I only have my father-in-law to help and he isn't getting any younger. The trailer sits all summer, only used to transport the boat to and from storage every year. Like you said, it's so freakin' far though.

It's 1225 miles from ft worth to Ontario Canada.

I'm sure I can find a trailer or lift to put my boat on and haul an empty trailer that would save huge on the fuel.


When do you drop your boat in for summer.

Your fenders would be awesome.

Here is the deal. Fenders have a cost. So does the axle and tires.

I would have more in my presidential rigging than swapping with someone.

Doug how bout you finance me for buying the business. I'll have them build me a real nice trailer for "company demonstration" and then I'll sell the business and pay you back. Lol

Usually first weekend of May - may be later this year if it doesn't warm up!
